2011 was an especially good year for LBV Port, offering great character and complexity at seriously good prices. Graham’s LBV is one of the best available, picking up six gold medals and a trophy in various prestigious competitions over the last two decades. Made from lots specially chosen by head winemaker Charles Symington and then aged for 4 to 6 years in cask, allowing the wine to develop before bottling. Sweet and dark fruit aromas combined with floral and herbal notes. Great concentration of fruits on the palate.
Graham’s Port has been renowned for producing some of the finest Port wines for almost 200 years. The firm was founded in 1820 by William and John Graham in Porto. After receiving twenty seven barrels of Port as a payment through their textiles business, they decided to focus all their energy on making the best Port wines from the Douro Valley. Owned by the Symington’s since 1970, Graham’s is the only remaining British Port company independently owned by a single family. It was also one of the first Port house to invest in its own vineyards and is now at the cutting edge of innovation in winemaking techniques. View nour selection.
Graham’s five vineyards are located in the Douro valley and all have the maximum ‘A’ grade classification. The estate is composed of Quinta dos Malvedos (89ha), Quinta das Lages (71ha), Quinta do Vale de Malhadas (32ha), Quinta da Vila Velha (56ha) and Quinta do Tua (28ha). They are mainly planted with Touriga Franca Touriga Nacional. Graham’s continue to make some of their Ports by traditional treading in stone lagares but also own a modern lagare in Malvedos.
